    I walked right past him but didn't realize what was happening. I saw this truck driver parked in an odd place. Apparently he was talking on the cell phone which made me think he was lost, but I took note because he stared at me in a very odd manner as I walked by. I noticed that something was odd, but I had no idea that he was in trouble. As it turned out, he was having a heart attack right then and there. I heard about it the next day.

    Luckily it seems that he will be okay. For what it's worth, most likely the thing to do would have been to have him chew an aspirin.

    One time I walked right past a guy who was getting mauled by a polar bear. He stared at me as I walked past, with a really weird expression on his face.

    :rofl: Yeah, I needed explanation on that one, but then I'm pretty fried today, possibly literally...spent the day roasting while running an experiment in a building with the A/C malfunctioning...the repair guy was working on it, but I'm not sure if it was a good or bad sign when heat would come blasting out of the vents...I figure they'll get the A/C working just in time for winter. :rolleyes: Well, at least it was still cooler than it was outside. :yuck:

    Wow, that's shocking.

    I wouldn't have known either. Let's hope he's doing better now.
